He was to get three or four times what he received for his lal?or at home, t"iron arriving at the office of the powder factory he was given a card for the "T. N. T. division." He- asked a white acquaintance where the card said for him to go. "Uo!" exclaimed the white man. "you had better la- corning back from lis-re. I>o you know what T. X. T. stands for?" "No, sir, lioss, I'se des come from Norf Ca'lina. an' dls bizness is new to me," said the negro. "I des come to make de money: dat's all." "Well, T. N. T. means Tri-NitroToluol. the most dangerous explosive In the world. It goes off if you look right hard at it. Something like- a thousand negroes have been killed in that division. 1 wouldn't work in there foi $100 a minute. That place Is called the De vil's House." "Say, boss, what did you say T. N.

"Vacuum is nothing with the air sucked out of it put lift in a pickle bottle?it is very hard to get."?Christian Register. Si) The members of a certain local exemption board shrugged their shoulders cynically when a young man appeared and asked for exemption on the ground of physical disability.

The Colleges as well as other agencies, have a real contribution to make towards the winning of the war. The special interests ?if institutions must be subordinated to the one purpose now before the nation. President Wilson has declared that it is the patriotic duty of young men under twenty-one years of age to seek a technical educat and if already in College, to continue and complete their education. A sufficient number of technically trained men is so essential that the W ar Department has made the following provisions to encourage college students arriving at draft age before graduation to continue and complete their courses. Immediately upon graduation, such students enter the service in their special lines. I. Qualified Engineering Students may enlist in the Engineering Enlisted Reserve Corps and be placed on the inactive li-t until graduation. At graduation they will have | an opportunity to enter an Engineer Officers' Training Camp t<> try for a Commission, or they enter tlu* Engineers' Corps as a private. 2. Qualified Engineering Students may enlist in the Xaval Reserve, and on graduation may enter the I'. S. Navy Steam Engineering School and train for Ensign's Commissions. (Students in the Naval Reserve will likely not he eligible for membership in the R. (). T. C.) 3. Qualified Agricultural Students in the Senior Class may enlist in the Quartermaster's Reserve Corps to be called to active duty in that branch of the service after graduation. ' The Secretary of War has distinctly stated that young men under draft age who have entered upon a technical college education can render the nation the greatest service by being educated first and serving afterwards.. Young men sixteen or seventeen years of age can graduate by the time tney reach the draft age and be prepared for maximum'" usefulness in the military establishment. Engineers and technicians cannot be made over night, and our Government will be seriously embarrassed if young men refuse to begin now the training necessary to keep up the supply of such men both for the needs of the army and for carrying out the war program at home. After the war the greatest opportunity in history will be presented to men trained in Agriculture, Kngineering and * other technical lines. If the Tinted States is to be a leader in the reconstruction of the world, she must have men trained for the task. FOR CATALOGUE. APPLICATION BLANKS, ETC., * WRITE AT ONCE TO ; W. M.
